Genesis 49:33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people.
Jacob calls his sons in. He tells each of them something. Some is about their failure but all something about their future. He tells them to do right. He reminds them of their responsibility. He finishes telling them what is on his mind. He pulls his feet into his bed and dies.
I would like to live my life as an example. I would like to keep a close relationship with my children. I would like challenge them to live for God and serve Him the rest of their lives. I would like to be trusting God so much that I would just lay back, relax, and go to heaven.
I want to live in such a way that I can die that way. I must live trusting Jesus and what He did on the cross. I must live in the gospel and let the gospel live in me so that I can have this life. How do you want to die?
